Thank you for choosing our office for your dental needs. We are committed to providing you with quality dental care in a comfortable and friendly atmosphere. We believe dental treatment is an excellent investment in an individual’s overall well-being. Sensitive to the varying needs of different people in fulfilling their financial obligations, we provide a number of dental payment options. We would like to acquaint you with our financial terms, which are intended to facilitate exceptional dental service.
PAYMENT OPTIONS – Full payment is expected at the time of treatment using one of our convenient payment methods. These include dental benefits, cash, check, credit card or CareCredit. For those without dental benefits, a bookkeeping discount of 5%* to age 60, 10%* for 60 and older, and 15%* for veterans is given for payment in full by cash or check at the time of service.
- Full Payment is due at the time of service.
- We accept payment by cash, check, credit card, CareCredit and most insurance plans.
- We provide insurance billing as a convenience to our patients. The patient portion of any particular dental service is estimated and due at the time of service.
- We are a preferred provider for a growing number of dental insurance companies.
DENTAL INSURANCE – Dental plan benefits are determined by a negotiated contract between your employer and an insurance company and we are not a party to that contract. As a courtesy to you, we are happy to file your dental benefit claims and assist you in maximizing these benefits. Any portion that is not covered by insurance is due by you at the time of service.
We encourage you to review your policy so you are aware of your plan specifics.
PARENTS – The adult who accompanies a minor to an appointment is responsible for payment on the day of a minor’s treatment using one of our convenient payment options. If the minor will be coming alone or with a caregiver, please make arrangements with our office in advance. The adult(s) who signed the new patient forms will receive billing statements for any additional fees that are due.
UNITED STATES VETERANS – We humbly offer a 15% discount* to Veterans and active-duty members of the United States armed forces in gratitude for your service and sacrifice.
COLLECTIONS – If a collection agency becomes involved in the settlement of your account, all collection costs and legal fees for both parties are the responsibility of the account holder.
MEDICAL ASSITANCE/BADGERCARE – Our office does not accept Medical Assistance.
*Military Veteran’s discount cannot be combined with 5% bookkeeping discount or other Lakeview Dental discount programs.
We realize that temporary financial situations may affect timely payment of your account. If such a problem should arise we encourage you to contact us before treatment for recommendations on the management of your account.
If you have questions regarding your account or to learn more about payment options including CareCredit please call our knowledgeable, experienced staff. Many times, a simple phone call will clear up any concerns.
